Related to my post about SFWA’s problems, this is funny as hell:
I’ve never read any Steven Brust books. I’m going to have to remedy that!
EDIT: And apparently Brust is the OPPOSITE side of the political spectrum from me. That should tell you how screwed up SFWA has gotten.
EDIT 2: Agree or disagree on the issue, I’m at least glad people are paying attention. I for one fall into the camp of I think it is sad to see a potentially valuable organization turn into a joke.
Other people think that SFWA is fine the way it is, and thought terminating cliches and PC purges are the best way to run a trade org.
The part that strikes me as humorous is that half the people hear that and think, yeah, those silly people who think SFWA has problems, what a bunch of cavemen. And the other half listens to it and thinks, yep, good thing I didn’t bother to join/renew.
